Without a doubt, my most favorite metal band back in the '80's. From Rob Halford wailing out the lyrics, to Glen Tipton and KK Downing's dueling guitars, it didn't get any better. I did lots of crazy stuff back in the day under their influence.
Got to see priest back on the Screaming for Vengence, and Painkiller tours. Pantera on Cowboys I think 3 different times that tour. Got to meet Dime and Vinnie, twice. Dime was just so nice and friendly.
